What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want to involve the community in the development of the game. Even at this stage, the game is already enjoyable and fun to play. As time goes on, new, interesting and exciting features will be implemented.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We plan to release version 1.0 in Q3 2023”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The game is currently available in solo mode. We want to implement co-op as a whole new dimension, where friends can build the island of their dreams together. And in the planned PvP mode, we'll introduce a brand new, exciting rivalry mode where you compete against your playmate. Previously, you only had to think about where the best place for your tile was, but now you also have to make sure your opponent doesn't take up a carefully planned empty slot. You might be able to trick him by expanding towards his island, making his job more difficult.

The sandbox mode will remove any stress caused by the unstoppable rise of the water, so we can fully enjoy beautifying and building our island without any external distractions.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Land Above Sea Below is under development but the current state of the game is absolutely in a playable, stable, and enjoyable state. There is a playable tutorial to learn the game mechanics and a classic game mode with challenges where you can improve your own highscore.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Yes, we would like to thank everyone who is already supporting us during Early Access with a reduced price for that period.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“The main reason for the early access release is to involve the community in the development of the game. We are actively seeking feedback and ideas on our Steam page and Discord server, which we guarantee will be personally read and considered by us, the developers of the game.”

About This Game

Land Above Sea Below takes you to the amazing world of a small island of the eternal autumn - created by you.

During this calm, landscape-building puzzle/strategy game, you have to grow your island’s territory and height by placing tiles next to each other, one after one. These infinitely available, procedurally generated tiles ensure that every island you make, every game you play will be different.

A great game to relax for a short time or to dive deep into its world for long hours.

In Land Above Sea Below, you start with one tile, on which the Last Tree of Fall grows. Your goal is to keep this tree alive as long as possible, by avoiding its tile getting swallowed by the sea.

To do so, you have to place the tiles one by one on the map into the available free spaces. However, you need to make sure to put the best matching tiles adjacent each other, as it will raise not just the territory, but the height of your island as well, thus getting away from the increasing sea level.
As you progress, tiles with new landscapes//terrain types will be unlocked. As the scenery gets more diverse, placing the tiles in their best position will become more and more challenging.

The tiles can be rotated to achieve your aspirations of the perfect Zen flow, but later it will be strategically important how you place the special tiles (road, river, wall, etc.), as it will affect the further growth of your island.

Special tiles shape your island in unique ways: a river will be always right above sea level, but it won’t raise further as your island expands.
You are only allowed to place a certain amount of tiles during one round, which is shown by a counter, so you need to plan your steps carefully. By successfully accomplishing challenges, you can get rewards (like extra steps, extra points, etc.). If the round ends, the sea level rises, and all tiles (except specials) that were just above the sea level, will be flooded, and sunk.

Reefs and other obstacles can be found and explored throughout the map, so it’s essential to plan ahead in your expansion.
Remember, as further your island rises from the sea level, as long your journey will be in your autumn world.
